With 2017 now officially over, thanks to our overlord The Calender, it’s time to look to the future. The near future, and what digital interactive gems it might bring. With so many great games released last year, even without whatever Bethesda has in store for 2018, or Nintendo, this year is looking to be chock full of great games. Here are our picks for what we’re excited to check out.
And of course Red Dead Redemption 2 is in there. How could it not be.
Red Dead Redemption 2
Platform(s): PS4, Xbox One
It’s hard to look past Rockstar’s next entry in its open-world classic Western opus, Red Dead Redemption. A lot is still unknown about its forthcoming sequel, but what we’ve at least seen, and posited, leaves even the driest of desert mouths watering. Frontier America is so ripe for story and open-world pickings -- two of Rockstar’s biggest design assets, sitting alongside this being built from the ground-up for the newer, more powerful consoles. Really, the barebones content we’ve seen so far is not even surface-scratching and although a delay was announced, we know that is only going to be good for the game. The only negative: no PC release announced or even hinted at -- a factor of the original that still brings a tear to the PC faithful (even if there is a way to actually play Red Dead Redemption on Windows 10 PCs).

F***! I forgot about Call of Cthulhu: well, it's the illustrious 11th entry here in our list of 10!
A different kind of expansive Point and Click Adventure game where combat is limited, but failure always on offer. How do you fight gods? These beasts can't die, and your mind is their stomping ground.
The game's setting is classic, and the team has done everything to honour Lovecraft while also adding their own spin to it all. It might not be the prettiest 2018 product going around, but what it lacks in absolute visual flair it makes up for in the substance and uniqueness department. Can't wait to lose my sanity to this one this year.
Bannerlord is the only game I'm waiting for.
No God of War? Or Detroit: Become Human? Those two are near the top of my list

There's no way Cyberpunk comes out this year
That Spider-Man game from Insomniac looks like it's gonna bring the goods too, and Days Gone looks like it has some potential
You take that back, you take that back RIGHT NOW!
Also, that rather cryptic tweet *beep* is widely being interpreted as something to do with cyberpunk 2077 .. maybe powering up.
I want to believe....

I want Cyberpunk 2077 SO F*****G MUCH
edit: also I am surprised PoE2 didn't make it onto the list :P
unnnnnnnnnnnggggggggg yep my most anticipated for sure
Tbh bannerlord up there for me. But they don't even have a proper release date :(
Metroid Prime 4......hopefully.
Maybe Bannerlord. I wonder if there will be a Game of Thrones mod like Warband for it.
Other than that, Maybe the new Total War game but I want to see more about it first, The Chinese setting is nice and all but I wanted Empire 2. I want muskets and cannons.
Hmmm yes. Metro 2033/4 have been on my todo list for a while. Time to dust them off perhaps.
If you like David Cage games Khel, it'll probably be for you, but his overusage of superfluous exposition and on-the-nose thematics leave me cagey about this. I haven't liked anything I've seen of it at all.
God of War I'm keen on, but it's not highest on my list. And the jury is still out on Spidey for me -- QTEs just annoy me so much these days.
Bannerlord looks the tits though!
decent list but i have a bad feeling that sea of thieves will be another no man's sky. also, i have no faith in anthem even though i enjoyed mass effect andromeda more than most people.
spiderman is the number one game i'm most excited for this year especially when it looks like this:
i'm also really looking forward to the last of us part 2 and cyberpunk but they're at least 2019+. according to a polish gaming site, cyberpunk will be revealed at this years e3 and journo's will get to see a behind closed doors demo.
Oh another game on my list is Phoenix Point. This is looking like it's going to be a good X-COM like game. Worth checking out for XCOM fans of both the original and newer versions.
It seems to be a good mixture of them both, like real projectile physics instead of the total RNG that the later XCOM's have.
OH, and thanks to this thread, I've added Bannerlord to that list.
